IN THE IT PIPELINE WHAT: A draft request for proposals for the support of the centralized records unit at the Office of Personnel Manage- ment’s Federal Investigative Services. WHY: FIS will soon be folded into a Pentagon-designed security clearance organization called the National Background Investigations Bureau, but it needs support to maintain the clearance process in the meantime. In a draft RFP issued Feb. 10, OPM is seeking a contractor to help manage the flow of back- ground investigation data at its Boyers, Pa., facility. The contract will cover scheduling interviews and reviews, managing data and coordinating with other agencies’ databases to evaluate individuals. The solicitation includes a list of security requirements that apply to OPM contracts in the wake of the massive hack that rattled the agency. Specifi- cally, anything that looks like an attempted hack, breach or other information security incident must be reported to OPM’s situ- ation room within 30 minutes of detection. The contractor will also need to get a Federal Risk and Autho- rization Management Program third-party assessment organi- zation to size up its security and privacy controls. Comments on the draft were due by Feb. 22 . OPM said the final RFP will likely be released in March. FULL NOTICE: is.gd/FCW_OPM Trending stolen Social Security numbers were used in a recent attempt to create accounts on IRS systems 464,000 Ann Barron-DiCamillo has stepped down as director of the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Comput- er Emergency Readiness Team and launched a venture capital firm to fund cybersecurity technologies. Two seasoned cybersecurity hands will join her in setting up the firm, dubbed Strategic Cyber Ventures: To m Kellermann, chief cybersecurity offi- cer at Trend Micro, and Hank Thomas, a principal at Booz Allen Hamilton. Darren Ash has resigned as CIO at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to take the top IT post at the Agriculture Department’s Farm Service Agency beginning March 6. Ash won a Federal 100 award in 2013 for his work with the American Council for Technology. More recent- ly, he has been co-leading efforts to develop an IT management maturity model to help agencies more effective- ly implement the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act. Stan Soloway, who recently stepped down as the longtime leader of the Professional Services Council, is starting a new consulting venture to help vendors make sense of the federal acquisition environment. Celero Strate- gies launched on Feb. 8. Donna Seymour, the embattled CIO of the Office of Personnel Man- agement, announced her resignation on Feb. 22. She had been under intense pressure since the hack that exposed the personal data of at least 22 million Americans and was scheduled to testify before Congress. Long-serving Education Department CIO Danny Harris retired on Feb. 29. The move came after a Feb. 2 con- gressional oversight hearing in which lawmakers aggressively questioned his effectiveness in the role. A department spokesperson said Harris “did not want to risk becoming a distraction to the department’s critical ongoing cyberse- curity work.” Brand Niemann, a former senior enterprise architect and data scientist at the Environmental Protection Agen- cy, died in January. He had retired in 2010 after 30 years of public service, largely at EPA. But the scope of his work went well beyond the agency. He was one of the federal community’s experts on XML, service-oriented archi- tecture, semantic interoperability and other technologies that have provided the underpinnings for the current gen- eration of digital services. — FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move 8 March 15, 2016 FCW.COM Join the conversation FCW uses Twitter to break news, field questions and ask our own.
